Cupcake Craft Challenge 11

I had to laugh when I first saw the theme for this week's challenge - 'There's a hole in my bucket', but it's gave me an opportunity to try out using my Nesties to make an aperture card...something I've been meaning to do since I got them. I had to keep the front of the card quite simple, as I had to attach the paper before I made the aperture - there was no way I'd have lined up all the holes if I'd tried to add it afterwards! The main image is one of last years 'Christmas Critters' by Penny Black, the paper is by DCWV ('Christmas' stack), the letters were cut using the Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet, and the sequins are from a pack that came with a Hero Arts clear stamp set. It was quite difficult to get a good photo of the card, but I think you can just about see through the aperture into the card in this one.
